And, we're getting a room

After spending 5 hours in ER where Lisa spent most of her time sleeping while they ran fluids and checked her blood counts the ER doctor strongly recommended she be admitted. I advocated against it reasoning that her blood counts were good and we would get better rest at home and wouldn't be interrupted ever hour for blood pressure and temp numbers. After 45 minutes of talking with various nurses, docs and Mike the ER doctor agreed to discharge her and send her up to the 7th floor for chemo. They could then make a decision regarding her staying or going home.

As luck would have it, we got one of the nurses we knew from our past stays. As I was pleading my case, Lisa threw up, her nose started to bleed and she stated she wanted to stay at the hospital. The nurse looked at me and I succumbed. Lisa had spoken.

We finally got into our room around 8:00 and Lisa continues to rest. Any time we move her she throws up. Her temp is staying at 100.4 so we need to keep a close eye on her. Hopefully she will bounce back quickly and this is just a bug and not a sign of things to come.

Have a restful night and keep sending prayers.
